Miami-Dade Jail Diversion Program

This program is designed to divert individuals with Serious Mental Illness, or co-occurring SMI and substance use issues from the criminal justice system into community-based treatment and support services. The program assists participants to navigate the requirements of the criminal justice process as well as to develop individualized transition plans to the community. Linkages to necessary psychiatric treatment, medication, supportive services and housing will be arranged prior to community re-entry.
